Much has been made about the creation of Erin Hills, built on a 650-acre tract of Wisconsin farmland that was, according to USGA executive director Mike Davis, simply screaming to have a golf course built on it.

Knox, one of three Scots in the field - alongside Martin Laird and Richie Ramsay - is unfazed by controversy over the heavy rough on the course.

Day said today he believed players already complaining about the fescue rough were unlikely to succeed. It gives you a lot of opportunities to hit the pin. "I had flawless weather", the Englishman said on Tuesday.

Knox, who is 39th in the world rankings, is content with his game after finishing tied for 37th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis.

"Obviously I've had a few weeks off to try and rest this injury that I've had all year, but I feel good", he added.

The weather forecast will play a vital role in how the Erin Hills course plays and what the scoring will be like in the 117th US Open. "I've played eight or nine rounds of golf over the past ten days".

"It's like a links golf course on steroids, everything is a little bigger", Rahm said. "But I look at more during the round knowing that, OK, the middle part of my round's probably the hardest part of my round, per se".

"The green complexes, with the exception of a couple, are fairly friendly I would say".

'These locations will be augmented by tablets and some of us on the committee will have those with us and will be able to move quickly on making decisions considering facts as we go forward'. It's not supposed to be easy.

"I've heard nothing but great stuff about this golf course and how much everyone's attitude is great at the start of the week", No. 3 Jason Day said.

"If their major pinnacle event requires courses to be the way they are, it doesn't set a good example". "We're at a bomber's paradise, and the best player in the world is the bomber", unusual said. At normal U.S. Opens, even the straightest guys miss fairways because they're like two club lengths wide.

On Monday, Na was particularly critical in an Instagram video, during which he demonstrated how the ball did not escape the rough despite hitting two shots. But if you let it get into your head you really have no chance.

'Am I going to win?

"And whether or not I feel as though I am under-cooked, well I would answer that by saying rather than a feeling like a piece of rare chicken, I feel more like a juicy steak".

World No. 1 and reigning champion Dustin Johnson arrived at Erin Hills late Tuesday afternoon and played some practice holes with Brooks Koepka a day after the birth of his second son.

A clearly frustrated McIlroy claimed the wider fairways lessened the potency of his world-class form with the driver. "I don't expect McIlroy to be clicking on all cylinders at the start, but I think his goal is to peak on the weekend".
